Abstract

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: To survey graduates of an ophthalmology residency training program regarding skills necessary for a well-trained ophthalmologist. METHODS: Two survey instruments were mailed to the graduates of the Baylor College of Medicine Department of Ophthalmology Residency Training Program. RESULTS: Specific skills were identified that were rated as clinically important and for which training was considered adequate, and, conversely, skills that were rated as less important but for which training was adequate. CONCLUSION: This survey instrument may allow ophthalmology residency training programs to identify perceived and real deficiencies in the resident education process, thereby assisting in the prioritization of changes in curriculum or the skills transfer process.
